And on Sky 3, another chance to see "Fuck up your living room"

I was interested to read the comments of a Mr James Murdoch, a purveyor of third rate toilet paper, anti-intellectual and gossip-monger, attacking the BBC.

As this is the weekend, when no bugger reads blogs, let me just say that, despite Ann Robinson et al, if the BBC is managing to annoy this dire little shit, then they are well worth double the licence fee.

You are quite right in your estimation of the practices of most of your readers, Vic. As you know, I do read your blog every day, even when you haven't written anything.

If I can just add a brief 'shoulders' to Dave's moving testimonial there Vic. Same here - I read 'em all, even the blank ones. Indeed, they're often the best posts, I find...

I don't have Sky myself, which is a shame because it means I'll be forced to go to the Cow & Snuffers this af'ernoon to watch Arsenal capitulate like a bunch of 12 year old apprentices* in the face of the might and majesty of the invincible Man 'Poo' U....

I didn't like him at all, that foreign chappy

and when the last word of his speech was "profit", I liked him even less

Ah, dear Vicus! I do so enjoy your little vitriolic gambols...
But I must, I am sorry to say, don my mortar board and correct your spelling...should this not read "Turdoch"?
(Actually, his granny is a lovely lady. How the heck she lived this long with these buggers in the family...)

Sometimes a "third rate toilet" paper can be quite useful after a "dire little shit".

Yes, I heard about this on the midnight wireless news last night. The BBC newscaster could barely disguise the irony in her voice when she reported him moaning that the BBC had a monopoly on news and stuff.

But if we could persuade Mr. Murdoch to marry Ms. Robinson we might kills two birds with one stone.

Unfortunately it is the weekend and I didn't read whatever it was you wrote about that FOXy Rupert Murdoch chap..
hasn't he bought the Beeb yet?

Rol said...

Nobody reads blogs? Is that law? Or is it another Murdoch decree?

Vicus Scurra said...

Dave. Without your support, well, I wouldn't have your support.
Morton. You should have let me know earlier, and come here.
ILTV. As ever, your judgment is sound.
MIT. Thank you for adding information to this important debate.
Rog. As ever, you bring class to the occasion.
Thank you all for bothering to switch on your computing machines at the weekend. You have brought joy to my day.

*jumping up and down with glee at the thought of bringing joy to Vicus*

just passing but not stopping to read as I believe that's the rules for this weekend?

Murdoch Junior is a man that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. Given that he's an American and owns the market leading tabloid, and the times newspapers and has a monopoly of satelite tv --- errm why should we listen to a word he has to say?

So most of what he said could be turned back in his direction. it's like coca cola having a go at Tetley's tea for dominating the tea market. I don't want your cold sugary tv Mr Murdoch, now go away.

I have never read your blog, probably because I made the cardinal error of only looking at the blank posts.

I'll be putting a big effort into rectifying this in future.

Isn't that old goat Murdoch dead yet?
